JONAS MAGRAM JAZZ QUINTET make their DEPOT debut
The Jazz Quintet features Jonas Magram (vocals and tenor sax),
Steve Hillis (piano), Bill Blackmore (double bass), and Steve Jeffries
(soprano sax, percussion) and Shawn Medeiros (drums).
Though known for a wide range of music styles, Jonas is especially at
home singing legendary jazz standards. As one JMJQ fan puts it, “It’s
rare that a single vocalist can melt your heart one moment and make
you want to get up and dance the next the way Jonas does.”
In addition to vocals, Jonas delivers some hip tenor saxophone solos.
JMJQ also features Steve Hillis’ keyboard wizardry, combining technical
mastery and refined style, perfect for JMJQ’s music. Steve “Crash”
Jeffries, soprano sax, rounds out JMJQ’s horn section.
Double bassist Bill Blackmore and drummer Shawn Medeiros, both
highly seasoned musical talents, form the band’s rock-solid rhythm
JMJQ’s music ranges from sultry Gershwin love songs to warm Bossa
Nova to foot stomping Ellington blues, every tune a treat for heart and
soul. The band also performs Latin and blues originals.
